Amazing gym! Staff and people there are friendly! It has everything you need to workout. Not too crowded and there is no gym out there that has the prices that force gym has anymore! Very affordable pricing while many other gyms in queens are upwards of 450-500$ per year i.e retro fitness on union tpke. VERY AFFORDABLE PRICING FOR A GREAT GYM. More...

Great gym, probably the best around here. The staff is great, the coaches are great, the owners are great. Classes are amazing, from Zumba to CrossFit.
And they always have good promotions :)

Force Fitness is an amazing gym. I'm a busy mom of 2 with a full time job and very little time to focus on myself. After recently giving birth to my second child, I've decided to take ownership of my body back, in addition to finding the energy to get through my intensely busy days and lack of sleep (my infant doesn't sleep much). I feel motivated to go to Force because of the great trainers, incredible selection of classes, convenient hours, and family-friendly atmosphere. This place has managed to resolve all my excuses.One big excuse I always had was that I can't go to the gym because of the kids. The CrossFit Kids class allows me to bring my son with me and workout while he works out. I've also taken my infant to the gym with me when I couldn't find a sitter. I feel welcome at Force Fitness and I feel like I fit in. I'm grateful to have a place to help me meet my goals and help me make fitness part of my lifestyle. More...

I joined force fitness when it first opened. 10 years later I'm still a very happy member. No matter what time of the day I go, I'm greeted by a friendly staff. What I like more is that the owners also workout here and are very knowledgeable in the fitness area. They have a great variety of classes as well as CrossFit. More...

On my third renewal at FORCE and 'm not going anywhere else! I thought that maybe having an alternative gym to train at would be beneficial, but I ended up going to that alternate place, at most, 10 times in the whole year. I have no need for any other place, as FORCE provides all that is needed. Dedicated and friendly staff that make me feel like I am part of the family, diversity of free classes offered, opportunities for additional types of training...what's not to love? More...

I joined force over the summer, they were having a three month trial period and since I was working in the area figured I would try them out. From my first day the staff was extremely courteous. Even before joining, Mike one of the owners answered all my questions I had via email. The classes are great, Highly recommend the ab and toning classes on Monday nights, with Antonia. I also signed up for one of their 6 week challenges, my trainer was Lauren and she is incredible!!! She will definitely kick your booty! She pushes and encourages you, but will also work with you if there are moves you can't do physically. I have an issue with vertigo, and during one of the classes she saw I was struggling a little bit, so she gave me a modification so I could continue working the muscle group we were working on. Unfortunately my membership expired back in September, but would definitely join again. You know a gym is good when your willing to travel on the BQE from Brooklyn to Queens to get a workout in!

Force is the best gym if you want real help getting fit. Force has the best trainers anyone can ask for. They don't play when you're training with them. They make sure you do your exercises correctly.They give great advice and they all get to know you by name.
The best gym I've ever been to. Do yourself a favor and check Force out.

I've always been intimidated by packed gyms with experienced members. But Force Fitness is far from intimidating. The staff and trainers are friendly. The members are there to work out and leave the drama and socializing outside of the gym. The gym is very spacious with several rooms for stretching and more intimate training. Although I haven't tried it yet, the CrossFit looks awesome and adds another level of training. There are plenty of machines available, so you will not find yourself waiting around to use one. Bathrooms are clean and well kept. There is a smoothie bar as well. Membership is really reasonable given the fact that several classes are included in the membership. If you are looking to join a gym in the Maspeth/Ridgewood area, look no further! This is it! Try it out for free for a week! More...

Force fitness is an amazing place. Atmosphere is great and everyone is very welcoming. Feeling good about beginning my journey here. Just completed my 2nd week of personal training with coach Pavli and it’s been amazing. Seeing great results and coach Pavli is a great coach and really cares about your goals, journey and getting you to the finish line. More...

I love this gym! I'm sad that it took me this long to find it but I'm so glad I did!!! This gym has everything! There is parking ( which is rare for the neighborhood) they have smoothies and prepared meals to go. There are personal trainers and a whole area for stret, stretching, a weight room with lots of weights, a cardio area, a cross fit area and an area for classes.  I am so excited for the 6 week challenge.  The price for the gym membership is great.

The Coaches are very supportive, passionate, dedicated and very friendly. I am more than satisfied!

Coach Chris, Coach Jay, Coach Steve,Coach Pat,Thank you all for always Supporting me and for always making me to give my best, and for being like a huge family,for changing my life !  Members are also very friendly and supportive. For people that are not members yet you should be a member of Force Fitness Club because all of the changing lives challenges,because all of the great Classes such as CROSSFIT which has become my favorite sport even if i feel sore and i feel like someone "beat me" is all worth the pain!

I have been a member of Force Fitness since the beginning. Although I had stopped going from time to time due to injuries, work, school, etc., force is top of the line. Mike, Vinny, and the staff have always made sure this gym is top of the line - from equipment, to service and to new offerings such as Cross Fit Ridgewood. This gym isn't your typical private gym. This gym has a family orientated feel to it. When you join, you join a family. Everyone is dedicated to reaching their goals and pushing/helping eachother reach theirs. Since the gym opened, I have seen multiple changes to either equipment, the facility, or whatever the case was. I am a huge fan of the new cardio machines. Also, I can't forget to mention the shake bar. Man, after a workout it is so necessary to fuel your body properly. Force definitely hit a sweet spot of mine with their amazing shakes. Plenty of add in ingredients to tailor to everyone's desires. I am not to familiar with their newest addition, but I believe they now serve meals from a local restaurant called Energy Fuel. I love the fact they have meals ready to go. Also, on the topic of meals, they offer meal plans through a company called "Kettle Bell Kitchen" (I believe). The meals will be delivered to the gym for you to pick up. I see a few people eating them on my visits. The training staff is great and they offer a boat load of classes for people to take. More...

Been memeber since fall, not know exactly date, love the gym and the atmosphere. Im usually there in am. The staff is great. Been to 4 gyms and this one is suits me best so far. Maybe not a classy chain one with towels and shit, but its the one that you go to to get what you need to get from gym. Its not social club it a gym and if you want to get results, live in area, this is the place! More...

Old school feel. Lots of free weights available. Multiple squat racks, benches and dead lift areas. What more can you ask for? I go out of my way to come here, and ive been a member of NYSC and Blink.Avoid peak hours 2-8. Way too crowded between then. More...

I joined Force when it first opened a very long time ago but then became lazy and quit. I rejoined in September 2016 and it has been smooth sailing since then. I started going after work and it is pretty busy and they have classes which are challenging and fun. I prefer to go in the early morning and the gym is much quieter and no need to wait for any machines. The gym is set up to have cardio in the front area and weight rooms in the back. Many people will not realize how large it actually is from outside. There is a room with a wooden floor, a room for group classes, and a cross fit room in the back which I have never been in. If you are in the neighborhood check it out-  the people are motivating and the environment is good. I would give 5 stars if they got a better cleaning person the guy is really nice and polite but not the best cleaner. More...

I like this gym, it has been good to me. It's a Mom & Pop shop and that goes a long way. The staff is friendly, rarely are the machines broken and if they are they're promptly fixed. It's a little pricey, sure, but it's a lone wolf business and you get what you pay for. I've been a member of some other big name gyms over the years, it was cheaper, but I had to commit to a multi-year contract and they found ways to steal money from me. The classes are challenging and a lot of fun. It's a very large space and one rarely feels like they're packed in like sardine. They make good smoothies. They also have very reasonable tiered packages for training and more advanced activities. You will occasionally get a text message giving you a free smoothie - dunno if that's a secret, but I just let the cat out the bag. More...

I've been going to Force since 2011 and never thought about switching to a different gym. Since day one they have treated me like family; each member and employee are extremely friendly, intelligent and helpful. Force Fitness Club takes pride in helping people reach their goals it shows by all their transformation pictures of other members. The classes they offer are amazing and free with just a gym membership! There is also a offer a new bootcamp program called Fitcamp which is dedicated to getting their members the results they want with four of their great trainers! I have enjoyed my experience there the last five years and recommend it to everyone who's in the area. More...

The BEST Gym and CrossFit Box in Queens. The trainers/coaches are extremely involved and passionate with coaching and training their clients.  If you need a question or help with anything they are right there. They are very serious about seeing you reach your goals. I have never came across a more professional team of trainers/coaches anywhere else but at this gym. I mainly train at Crossfit Ridgewood which happens to be inside Force Fitness and the Coaches are AMAZING!!! and so are the friends that I made and being a part of the CrossFit community. I don't think there is any gym out there that also has a CrossFit box within. I really do recommend this gym and CrossFit Ridgewood as THE place to join, workout, reach goals and make new friends.

This gym is for people who want to work out and get results, not sit at juice bars and chat after a 10 min stretching session. Here, you're not going to find fancy machines, places sit to and hang out, or any other updated cliche gym equipment. I of course am referring to retro fitness. It's a great gym, but way too crowded now, and more of a hang out spot for pre teens.Like I said, if you want to actually workout and not socialize like you're at a cafe, then this is the place for you. They have regular weights, plenty of machines, Olympic style equipment, yoga rooms and even an entire cross fit section in the back. You basically have every option possible. If you want to sign up, they always have great deals going. More...

I was brought to FORCE by a Living Social Deal. I wanted an unlimited gym deal near to either my Job or Home to make convincing myself to go easier. Above all else, I wanted classes, I wanted to be able to take whatever class whenever I wanted, and this gives you that.Now there are gyms that cater to different people. If all you need is an elliptical, this is not the gym for you. Go to PF, or Retro, or Blink. I have a Planet Fitness membership, I go there primarily to run. I'm down about 20lbs but let's not pretend, I'm STILL totally a fatty, but I like this Gym. I've only been there for a few hours, I attended a BootCamp Class. I thought i was going to die, but it would have been the sweetest death. The staff was friendly, the patrons stayed out of each other's way, there was no foul smell.People mention"Meat Heads" as if it's such a bad thing to be at the Gym with people who are specifically motivated to sculpt their bodies. I admire people who know how to, and are working towards the specific goals they have in mind. Everyone just seemed supportive of everyone else. Well.. most people.I only gave four stars because i haven't even been a member a day, but i enjoyed my initial experience. If you're interested in the Living Social deal, I say go for it.OR! Go to the website, get the week long free pass, try it out for a week, if you're with it? Get the Living Social, if not? Keep it moving. No harm, no foul! More...

Force fitness provided me with a great workout.  I was able to utilize a week pass while I passed through NYC, so for free I got to use this gym that i would have happily paid for. Free weights were in order, and all the way up to 150 pounds. The machines and benches were great as well, even pull up bar and ropes were provided. Bathrooms were clean,  the staff was friendly as well. My only complaint was that I wasn't able to use any of the kettlebells, which was made clear to my by the crossfit instructor, when he smiled and said that they were available only to the crossfit members in a slightly self righteous and elitist tone. H  The way he said it left a mental image of  him smelling his kale and salmon farts before he finishes to rich fronning doing the fran.  But he was friendly as well and overall didn't negate the great experience of the gym.

I used to fall for the "heyy ladiez do a buncha cardio ew weights = bulk" malarkey. I went to Planet Fitness and didn't see results. I discovered FFC through their CrossFit program and am more than impressed with it and the gym in general. For real, ladies, weightlifting is the way to go. The place is huge, for starters. If you go before 6:15pm or after 8pm, you should have plenty of weights and access to a bench or squat rack (I love that there are 3 places to do squats.) They keep everything clean for the most part, there are minimal meatheads, and if you're into cardio that area is separate with a lot of machines, including rowers (aw yiss). Shake bar also worth it--it takes me 20 minutes to get home so the recovery is necessary. One tastes like a Thin Mint! The CrossFit classes are supportive, informed, and everything you'd expect. Instructors push you and the box itself is supplied like gangbusters. This place kicks ass and lets you kick your own ass. #corny More...

Great people, with an energetic atmosphere. The free parking is a major plus. Great juice bar and protein shakes. A wide selection of classes and lots of open space with free weights and machines. I go everyday and every time I go, i see familiar friendly faces. Making friends at Force is easy since everyone almost knows everyone. Do yourself a favor and invest in their awesome hats! I got one for free for signing up, and it's my favorite hat now. The owner Vinny is a friendly face around the gym, and is always there to help members. More...

I have been a member of force for over 2 years now and just signed up for my 3rd year ... I have worked out at home & other gyms and I've never been more happy then at force .. I have met so many great motivational people who go there some who have become good friends to me , great helpful friendly staff , different classes & their always adding new ones n different times to keep everyone happy , and for those interested in personal training hands down best place for it ! My money on training was all worth it I got into the best shape of my life !! . They also have a smoothie bar for everyone who like a shake before or after their workout . So for everyone who's looking for a gym for a good serious workout and not there worried about the "TVs " around cuz hello it's a gym it's workout time you can catch your shows later .. I highly recommend this gym !! More...

I was only going to this gym for about 2 weeks until NYSC gave me a come back deal I would be crazy to turn down.    I understood the cancellation policy and the guy at the desk made it very easy to cancel.As apposed to the ranter Christina, the people there are very nice and as well as the neighborhood considering its next to a busy intersection.  The weight area is pretty good and the cardio area has good equipment.  Its a local gym that gives very good service for a local place.  People need to stop comparing  local places to large commercial entities, such as NYSC.

Force is a a solid gym, definitely one of the better ones in Ridgewood. The options for gyms in the area sucks, but since moving here I am glad to have this place. If you're looking to get fit and put on muscle or lose weight then this place is great. If you are a hardcore bodybuilder then this place is fine, but missing some cool machines and the intensity of a Powerhouse Gym. There ARE big guys here, however I would say most of the members look more fitnessy and athletic than muscular and huge. Perhaps the best thing about the gym is that they don't blare techno-crap rather they hit you with either old school rap like 2Pac or the sweet tunes of Metallica.Another cool bonus is that with your very fairly priced membership, to my surprise, they also offer free yoga classes, zumba, spin and maybe something else that I don't know about.What locks this gym in as 4 stars though is that they are still trying to improve what they offer and are making adjustments tailored to their members. They are open for longer hours (now closing at midnight  on weekdays and even better, on Sundays they close at 8pm which is later than many gyms and very convenient for us working folk). P.S. They are adding a juice bar and have competitions for a $1000 prize, which seems cool although i haven't participated. True, it's not the best gym I have ever been too, but it's the best in the area for a great price. More...

Force Fitness is a great neighborhood gym they have built a truly unique community here that I have never seen replicated at a gym.  The owners Mike and Vinny are genuinely good people--very helpful,honest, friendly and professional. It is obvious that there is pride taken in the operations of this gym. They have all you need for a good workout.  Force has a feeling that you do not find at other gym's which is a friendly atmosphere. People smile, say hello even if they do not know you.  I feel completely comfortable and not intimidated in any way. If you have a question or need help with a goal, there is always someone there to make sure you get squared away. People of all ages, shapes and conditions are made to feel welcome.  Force Fitness has a great sense of community rather than an overwhelming sense of creepy meat-heads.Force has extremely competent top-notch Personal Trainers. My trainer Jay Quinn has pushed me to do the things I know I am capable of but somehow can't accomplish on my own. My workouts are more challenging and consistently more fun. I would not feel as good as I do if it weren't for Force Fitness and Jay. Membership fees are very reasonable and they always a new special promotion going on. The equipment is up to date and clean. The Zumba and Spin Classes are awesome full of motivation and fun. This is the type of gym that offers something for everyone.I cannot recommend Force Fitness and its Staff highly enough! If you live in the Neighborhood this should be YOUR GYM!! More...

I was at first intimidated because I thought perhaps it was a gym only for meat heads (not that I have a problem with meat heads). I have really enjoyed going and there are people of all fitness levels. The locker rooms are clean. The price was great. Antonia is an excellent and encouraging trainer. Overall- I am super happy.  I hold back on 5 stars because the classes are mostly only at night. More...

I've been going to Force (on & off) for the last 6 months now. I love this place in the morning. New & clean equipment is a plus. BUT, now that my fiancée has been joining me in the gym we've been going at about 7pm and the place is MOBBED! It's a bit of a pain searching for a parking space (we plan to start biking when weather warms) and then trying to find a machine or bench that is available. At that time the cardio equipment is full. All in all i like this gym, the 5pm - 7pm crowd you are going to find at any gym in the country, there is nothing that can be done about it. If i have any gripes about Force (and this may or may not be their fault) I find that broken machines go a while before they are fixed, and in a gym that is not that big with limited equipment, every piece counts.

I'm not a "sports" person, so I don't subscribe to the "GTL" ethic. Surprisingly though, I feel very comfortable in this gym. Most of the staff is very courteous, friendly and professional. Both the chiropractor and yoga instructor are highly recommended.  The gym equipment is clean, up-to-date, and easy to work with. Don't worry if you don't have a rock-hard body. If you're serious about losing weight, this gym works with you. My only gripe is that the classes are only during night. I suppose its because most of the clientele works 9 to 5, so what can you do.
